Tommy doesn’t care for fish, but he loves fish tacos! A few other seafood taco recipes I love, Blackened Fish Tacos, Shrimp Scampi Tacos and Green Scallop Tacos.

I like it spicy, so I chop up the jalapeños whole, seeds and all but you can tone it down to suit your taste. The avocado raises the fat in this dish, but it’s all good healthy fats. Any flaky white fish would be great such as flounder, sole or tilapia.
